Excuse me but you are referring to Nazi germany, an atheistic, supremecist movement that sought to kill non-aryans, eradicate the minorities and propagate their kind. My sympathies go out to your grandfather and all victims of the horrific holocaust, but to compare an incompetent president to the nazis is an over exaggeration.

First of all, he is a lame duck president, unalbe to carry out any of his plans without the consent of the powers to be. Second of all, many political analysts believe his words to be empty rhetoric aimed at winning the sympathy of his people since he has demonstrated no economic or social plan and is simply gliding through the presidency on hate speech.

Third of all, Iran will never be able to have a nuclear weapon, the simple dynamics change in the area will be too great to allow a nuclear iran and its own neighbors including the arabs will not tolerate this development. Finally, I think the real game changer will be a peace treaty between the palestenians and israelis. With the last great conflict of the 20th century resolved people can start building bridges and overcoming their centuries long distrust, anger and hate...........and at that moment such hate speech on his part will seem pointless.
